    Pros

    Pay and benefits are excellent Having Amgen on your resume Thousand Oaks is a nice town Lots of job openings, and can move around

    Cons

    Bloated with too many middle managers, executive directors and directors. Everyone passes the buck and not many try to simply get the job done. Everyone spends way too much time putting together slide decks and going to meetings. Thousand Oaks is a boring town.

    Advice to Management

    Try going more toward a matrix structure, and eliminating middle managers. Big pharma companies are much less bureaucratic than Amgen. Your scientific brilliance and excellence are drowning in slide decks, meetings, and favoritism.
